the gentleman from michigan, mr. curson, for five minutes. mr. curson: thank you, mr. chairman. i ask unanimous consent that all members have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and to insert material into the record on the subject of representative emanuel cleaver's retirement as chair of the congressional black caucus. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. curson: i, too, offer my congratulations to representative cleaver for his service to all americans as the c.b.c. chair. millions of americans are out of work through no fault of their own. millions of americans are relying on federally funded benefits to make ends meet and -- as the nation starts recovering. these long-term benefits for the unemployed will immediately and completely stop on december 29, 2012, unless we in congress act. there is no phaseout. every individual receiving those benefits now will be cut off cold. the department of labor estimates that over two million americans will lose their emergency benefits at the end of the year, including over 92,000 people in my home state of michi

dingell, democrat from michigan and he has been serving since 1955. previouslpreviousl y his father sanded -- served in the same congressional district until his father died in the sun ran and took his place. dingell is, used to be thought of as illiberal and no one thinks of him as a liberal and certainly the democrats don't because they marginalize him. and yet thank you has proven and i show it throughout the book that even with the democrats in the minority and even with him being removed from the pecking order power, they want to get things done. this why the guy knows how to pull strings on behalf of the district to get parts appropriated to get bills passed and he passed his pipeline safety bill which is essentially a regulation bill during the tea party congress. it's almost unheard of, but dingell is i think a dying breed. his philosophy is, you govern from the center. you begin writing a bill from the center which means you bring everybody on board, put them in a room and talk about what they like. it's not the way it works in today zero some policy where their idea now the rep

great!" >> jennifer: more than 30 michigan schools will close two days early for the holiday break this year. why? well, it is not to give students an early christmas gift. it is because officials are concerned about copycat killers following the newtown tragedy. now, the superintendent of one of the districts issued a statement saying... john fuglesang my friends has it really come to this? that kindergarteners can't go to school because we, as a country can't ensure they'll be safe from semi-automatic weapon wielding lunatics and the solution from our far right wing friends? arm the teachers. the very teaches they've called union thugs. we should pay to train these teachers. the people who scream us to about fast and furious and said gun proliferation and mexico was dangerous are still telling us gun proliferation in america makes us safer. welcome to the u.s.a. where of some you will find it's easier to buy a weapon designed to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time than it is to marry who you love or vote

cliff. the next day the president jetted off to michigan to campaign for tax increases instead of staying in washington to work on a possible plan. with a national debt of over $16 trillion, washington's out-of-control spending is placing our national security at risk. clearly spending is a threat with an increase of 93.5% over 10 years and revenues increased only 15.7%. raising taxes on the american economy will destroy jobs. reports have indicated that raising taxes on the top 2% will generate up to $80 billion a year. this amount of money covers less than 10% of our nation's annual deficits. it's my hope that the president will address the fiscal cliff to work with house republicans to promote small business job growth. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we will never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois rise? mr. dold: to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. dold: th

this money, where is it going to end? host: our last call is going to be from michigan. we have shelley on the independent line. what do you think about the president's remarks or the fiscal cliff beck's caller: -- fiscal fliff? caller: there was not much else he could save. they are not going to make an agreement. this is why they are called the do nothing congress. they do not do anything. the republicans, to me -- i feel they let the people belong to the tea party make the stamps for them. even if some of them what to compromise, the tea party gets in there. for some reason, they listen to them. it is a shame, her because most americans, they need help. we need help. and we do not get anything. in michigan, where i live, the governor has knocked down the unions, you know? he has done the teachers terrible. now, we have to spend more money on our social security. all of us should protest. i do not care what city or state we belong in. we should protest against this do-nothing congress. host: you can always check out our special page on our website, set up for all things related to the

if we extend all of these middle-class tax cuts. in michigan, to share with me what $2,200 means to them. one of them said it was four months of groceries. that is a big deal. we were figuring out gallons of gas to go back and forth to work. it could buy -- for the average commuter, they could go back and forth to work for three years. when families are going into the holidays, they need to know that we get it. we see every day, republicans in the house as well as olympia snowe that urged us to come together to get this done. we have heard from tom cole that they pass the senate bill. we are hearing from house members saying to get this piece done. republicans said, why don't you get together and get things done? we know that if the discharge petition comes out before the house, they have enough votes to pass it. why wait 27 days? why not just do it now. the house needs to take up a bill that we gave them back in july. it passed on a bipartisan vote here and when is brought up in the house it will pass with a bipartisan vote. >> i want to echo a little bit of what the senator said. consu
